I just got my first order, I've not tried any of them yet but the foundation colors look a little more yellow then I thought they would. Ugh, I'm not sure any will be right for my skin.

I got some brushes and stuff for free gifts and I received 2 eyeshadows that I know I don't want. They are unopened, if someone would like them I'd be happy to put them in a padded envelope and send them to you. I can tell by looking they are not colors I'd ever wear.

They are:

tinsel time eyeshadow

ginger bread man eye shadow

Susan

Susan, Donna is right. The colors do often look different in the jar than on. Also, somtimes they can be mixed with lighter/darker shades to get a color you like. I have a blast mixing and changing colors, lol!

I got it I got it. I havent even opened it up yet, i just had to come and tell u all lol

paula

Paula, Yay for you! How can you be so patient? Start ripping those packages open right now, lol.

I opened them up, omg they are tiny how can that be 4-6 uses for the foundation, i bet i use one cantainer in one day lol. I already have makeup on, so i will try it in the morning, i wish i would have got some lip stick and eye shadow tho. But oh well that will be my next step since i get it so fast lol.

Paula, I've gotten about 6-7 or more applications out of my tiny little foundation samples, and way more than that out of my blush samples...I think the eye shadow minis will last me forever, lol. It really doesn't take a lot of product to do the job.

It's surprising how little you really need. One word of advice though is to apply very small amounts first and re-apply in layers until you get the coverage you want. If you put on too much at once it will look cakey. You can put on several applications of a small amount and it will look nice that way.

Have fun playing tomorrow!

My samples of foundation last for at least two weeks each, and I wear many layers each day. Tap the rim of the container onto a flat surface about three or four times. Whatever comes through the sifter is about how much you need for one layer. Then swirl your brush into it, tap the excess off of your brush, and buff it into your face.

I don't know if that made sense :blink:

Perfect sense Mango :lol:

And I concur, the samples of foundations should give you many applications Paula. You only need a small amount of minerals, and just buff away!

How exciting your order came today!! Have fun playing and let us know how it goes.

edit- some of the other gals have used the concealer mixed in with a little mousturizer, but they might be able to give some more tips and tricks.

hhmmmm, I pried all the sifters off and I just dip the corner of my brush into the powder and swirl it in my lid.

I did that the first time...but prying the sifters off was just too much effort :lol:

My epic order is currently just minutes away from my house :D:D:D

I ordered it on Friday! That was so fast!!!!!!!!

I do it this way too, otherwise I can't get any of it out! The little holes are plugged up in those tiny containers!

Yay Mango, how exciting!

I tried to shake it out of the holes and none of them worked, so i thought u had to pry the lids off lol. Im guessing its easier on the big lids.

Also should i get mixing bowels or is that not necessary

I think this order is going to be like 100 bucks by the time im done lol

Also are the towelettes good to use to take off ur makeup?

You'll have to talk about mixing bowels on one of the many other bowel-related threads :lol:

Just kidding...I think the bowls look fun, but I don't think any of us have tried them yet. They probably help quite a bit if you get the mini size containers. I don't think you need them if you have the full size containers (because with those you can just use the lid).

lmao, i always do that lol. At first i just read your first part of the reply and was like huh, i have brain fog, i think lol.

Ok sounds good, it would be cheaper to get a big size then when it is gone then just use that as a mixing bowl or like u said just use the lid.

I bought the mixing bowls and LOVE them :wub: ! They are purple and come in 5 sizes. I use mostly the two smaller sizes. But they are actually measuring bowls, so they can also be used in the kitchen ;) .

LOL! Prying off the lids is a good idea. I have one container that I have to bang so hard to get anything out of, lol!

It wouldn't be hard to spend 100 bucks at EM with all the accessories and things they have. I could buy all their brushes, lol. I want to try the large mixing jars, they come with a sifter. Although, the mixing bowls do look like fun. :D

I tried Chit Chat today again and I'm really liking it. Still looking for the right blush brush tho. :)

OKay, so you all DO know that the little mini containers have a cellophane tape thingy over the holes, right? :lol: It's not easy to see it but it's there, and there's no tab thingy like on the small or large sizes you just have to kind of scrape the tape off. Outside of that tape thing, my little holes haven't plugged up. :P

Paula,

I haven't tried the towelettes yet, but I've had them in my cart a few times. I've also had the bowls in my cart a few times, lol. They keep getting bumped for actual makeup. :lol:

Also, they have the empty large size containers which are only $2.00 if you wanted to get the container. I use a margarine tub lid to tap out my minerals then swirl my brush in...if you have any kind of plastic lid or bowl that you can use only for your minerals you can just use that. I have one for blush, one for foundation and one for eyeshadows. Once I get some full-sized containers I won't have to do that.

Just ordered the sample kit...i am hoping to love it. I have been using Bare Minerals for a while, is the coverage as good with Everyday minerals? I still use Chanel lip gloss...it is also gluten-free.

I did get a sample kit and I asked the customer service people at Every day minerals to help me choose. I sent them a number of pix of myself that showed my skin. I know the color on a computer monitor isn't exact but this pix were taken in daylight with no make up and were pretty right on. Oh well!

One of two of the foundations I can sort of use, but almost all of them were WAY to yellow for my skin and way too light. I'm a blonde but if I go out in the sun I tan and never burn so my skin isn't as fair as it looks. I'm a little bit bummed, its not anyones fault but I was excited to try this. Back to the drawing board.

I'll try one more time but this how it turns out to be far more expensive then Bare Minerals... its trial and error whereas with BM I can try them on in Sephora.

Even the blushes I got look pink in the pot but when I put them on my face they turn sort of an orangey hue. That might have something to do with my moisturizers, I have very dry skin and I wear a lot of moisturizer.

I'm surprised no one wants the unopened eye shadows, I'm on a Bare Minerals list and not only do they trade unopened BM all the time but they trade "used once" pots too!

Oh well they are here for the asking.

I wish there was an easier way to pick this make up out.

Susan :(

Hi Susan,

Sorry it isn't working as easily for you as it should. I also send EM a picture in natural light with no makeup on and the samples they sent me back were just a shade too light. It does seem to take some trial and error to get the exact match on the foundation shade. Could you just order another sample kit with colors that you think would work better?

There also does seem to be a slight difference (sometimes) in the color samples and the pictures of the color swatches. A good way to determine if a color is going to be what you think is to read the descriptions of the colors. If you hold your mouse over the color a paragraph about the color will come up. It will tell you that it is peachy-pink with a shimmer and is good for light to medium skin types or something along those lines. It seems to work out better for me if I go by the descriptions.

The other good thing about EM is that it can be mixed so if you get a color that is too dark or too light, you can add a bit of foundation or lighter/darker color to it and change it's pigment some. This has worked well for some of us.

You can also just keep ordering sample kits and try out 3 foundations, a blush and eye color without ordering anything else and all you have to pay for then is the shipping cost.

Good Luck to you, I hope you have better success on your next try.

Thanks, I'm going to read the descriptions and try again. I'm going to order a bit darker this time, so thanks for the tip about mixing them.

My bathroom is going to be filled with pots!

It was easier when I used just a single liquid foundation but with dry skin and a lot of moisturizer it would literally just slide off after a few hours. I've had better luck with mineral make up staying on and it takes the sheen off my skin which I like.

My only real complaint about mineral make up is its a pain to travel with and I travel often. Which is one of the reason I'm hoping I can work out Everyday Minerals... they sell tiny pots which is better for travel.
